Call For Papers: The 20th Annual Workshop on Scheme and Functional Programming, 2019

Kristopher Micinski
Call For Papers: The 20th Annual Workshop on Scheme and Functional
Programming, 2019
Co-located with ICFP in Berlin, Germany

------------ Details and Dates ----------------
Workshop website: https://thomas.gilray.org/scheme-2019/
Submission deadline: May 24, 2019
Author notification: June 23, 2019
Camera-ready deadline: June 19, 2019
Workshop: Sunday, August 18, 2019 (Sunday before ICFP)

We invite high-quality papers about novel research results, lessons
learned from practical experience in an industrial or educational
setting, and even new insights on old ideas. We welcome and encourage
submissions that apply to any dynamic functional language, especially
those that can be considered a Scheme: from strict subsets of RnRS to
other "Scheme" implementations, to Racket, to Lisp dialects including
Clojure, Emacs Lisp, Common Lisp, to functional languages with
continuations and/or macros (or extended to have them) such as Dylan,
ECMAcript, Hop, Lua, Scala, Rust, etc. The elegance of the paper and
the relevance of its topic to the interests of Schemers will matter
more than the surface syntax of the examples used. Topics of interest
include (but are not limited to)

- Interaction: program-development environments, debugging, testing, refactoring
- Implementation: interpreters, compilers, tools, garbage collectors, benchmarks
- Extension: macros, hygiene, domain-specific languages, reflection,
and how such extension affects interaction.
- Expression: control, modularity, ad hoc and parametric polymorphism,
types, aspects, ownership models, concurrency, distribution,
parallelism, non-determinism, probabilism, and other programming
paradigms
- Integration: build tools, deployment, interoperation with other
languages and systems
- Formal semantics: Theory, analyses and transformations, partial evaluation
- Human Factors: Past, present and future history, evolution and
sociology of the language Scheme, its standard and its dialects
- Education: approaches, experiences, curricula
- Applications: industrial uses of Scheme
- Scheme pearls: elegant, instructive uses of Scheme

Paper preparation details are available on the Scheme Workshop
website. To encourage authors to submit their best work, we offer
three tracks:
- Full Papers, with a limit of 14 pages. Each accepted paper will be
presented by its authors in a 25 minute slot including Q&A.
- Experience Reports, with a limit of 14 pages. Each accepted report
will be presented by its authors in a 25 minute slot including Q&A.
- Lightning talks, with a limit of 192 words. Each accepted lightning
talk will be presented by its authors in a 5 minute slot, followed by
5 minutes of Q&A.

The size limits above exclude references and any optional appendices.
There are no size limits on appendices, but the papers should stand
without the need to read them, and reviewers are not required to read
them.

Authors are encouraged to publish any code associated to their papers
under an open source license, so that reviewers may try the code and
verify the claims.

Proceedings will be printed as a Technical Report at the University of
Alabama, Birmingham. However, publication of a paper at this workshop
is not intended to replace conference or journal publication, and does
not preclude re-publication of a more complete or finished version of
the paper at some later conference or in a journal.

Please help us celebrate twenty years of scheme workshop by submitting
a paper. If you’d like my personal perspective on why you should
submit, I’ve written up a short blurb here:
